No other way to interpret this testimony in response to a question by Congressman Trey Gowdy regarding the rights of religious believers.
An account of the hearing was issued by the Catholic News Agency. It’s almost painful to read. The secretary admits she was unaware of legal precedents confirming religious freedom, even as she sought a “balance” between believers’ rights and the contraception mandate. “I’m not a lawyer, and I don’t pretend to understand the nuances of the constitutional balancing tests,” Mrs. Sebelius told Mr. Gowdy. She also admits she is unaware of Supreme Court cases stretching back decades in which, as the Catholic News Agency put it, “religious believers’ rights against government intrusion were upheld by the court.”
In other words, she really didn’t bother to find out what the law and the Constitution actually happen to say. That our “con-law prof” president would appoint such a buffoon to head a cabinet agency is one more reason to get this gang out of Washington before they warp the Constitution beyond recognition.
